what the hell are wound care centers? and why would you go to them rather than the surgeon who did the wounding and. i'm sure they taught these doctors what to do AFTER surgery, not just before and during....

Wound care centres are like a doctor's office but are usually staffed by nurses who have special training in wound care. You can go there to have a dressing changed instead of having a nurse come to your house. These nurses are the experts in wound care. Many surgeons are suprisingly uninformed about wound care. Many of them still treat wounds as they did 30 years ago. These wound care centres know the latest and greatest products available to treat wounds especially chronic non-healing wounds like many of us on this board develop. In Canada they are usually run by the organization in charge of homecare (CCAC in Ontario), Im not sure how they work in other countries.
